Hi all, has anyone got any suggestions for a very quick (10 mins) exercise in face to face workshop setting to learn how to build trust and rapport please (this is in the context of a mentoring workshop), thanks.

Hi Sarah Try the ice breaker - introductions. I?ve used this very effectively to introduce rapport and trust. I sometimes change the questions to be relevant to the topic or more probing to encourage disclosure Clare
Hi, I have used Sheep Trails very successfully both online and In person workshops to build trust. Best wishes Pooja
Sarah I often use the Trust Equation when getting teams/ leaders to think about trust. It looks at 4 elements that make up trust and how we can build or lose it - credibility, reliability, intimacy and self interest. There's a great mini free assessment on the website, and I get people to brainstorm each element and what they can do to build trust in that area e.g. self interest - start with their agenda 1st in 1-to-1 not mine / intimacy - find a common point of interest.
Hi Sarah,

Have you considered:
Alien Invasion - The Fragility of Trust
Or, if you've some outside space, Glasstap Sheep Trial is brilliant.

These might not be what you're looking for but thought I'd point them out in case you'd missed them.
